    Saw these at a local specialty DVD shop - I've never seen them before.

    Are they worth getting or no?

    Read the Euro-Horror forum, there are tons of threads on these films. In short though, ZOMBI 3 is pretty bad, ZOMBIE 4 is hilariously bad, and ZOMBIE 5 is just kinda boring bad. Of course I own them all.

    Ugh.... judging from what I read in the Euro forum, I think I'll leave them at the store. They want $25 a piece for them, and I think I'd rather spend that $$ on GiJoe Series 1 part 1.

    $25 a piece. Good God. Just do to DDD, they're less than $15 each. I paid that for them, and was glad I did. They're crap. But good crap.

    I rented all three before. They are mostly enjoyable, but I wouldn't argue with anyone who said they're crap. I enjoyed the 'Killing Birds' one with Robert Vaughn the most.

    Yeah, but being in Canada the conversion + shipping costs will end me up at least at $25 a piece anyway, so either way I'm screwed.

    You mean "loved the 2nd, hated the 3rd and haven't seen the 4th" because the 2nd is really the 1st. Zombi 3, 4, and 5 are actually the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, unless of course you live in Europe, then you're right. But none of them really have anything to do with the 1st or the 2nd. Anyway, check out Zombie 3: The Nights of Terror aka Burial Ground. That one's better than all of them. :D

    Indeed, BURIAL GROUND is the best without question.

    ZOMBIE 3 (the Fulci-Mattei one) is one of my all-time favorite "bad" movies, and AFTER DEATH was pretty entertaining, too. I have yet to see KILLING BIRDS.

    Heh heh. All of these are better than burial ground. Which is not to say they're not all good, and that they're not worth getting.

    I cannot believe the canadian dollar is worth so little against the US dollar. The US dollar is hardly worth anything right now if you convert european money for it. I love buying from the US :D

    It's not really the conversion watts. It's shipping and customs that really gets us .... but yeah, it's sad our dollar is worth that much less than the US .....

    Gotcha. I beat the shipping thing by only making order of $100 or more. I never buy individual discs from the US. Sometimes Customs gets me, sometimes not. It's completely random. When they get me, I pay, it's still good.

    I understand though.

    The word 'Zombie' used in these movies is just a simple cheap cash in on Lucio Fulcis classic. I've seen them all and unless you are a die hard fan, I would stay away.

    AFTER DEATH is pretty bad when you enlist a porno actor to play the lead! LOL

    Hey I like Jeff Stryker in AFTER DEATH. I like his constant look of "distress" in all the action scenes. He needs to do more of these films...he's willing to do them. Of course, he is a total legend in his other occupation...
